We provide advice and support to unpaid carers in the London Borough of Hillingdon of all ages, who care for someone who is ill, frail, disabled, or has a mental health, drug or alcohol problems. Our services will support carers to make informed choices about their caring roles; remain healthy and socially connected; access emotional support when caring gets tough, and mitigate against some of the negative impacts that caring can have on lives.
1. We will work to ensure that carers are recognised and valued for the care and support that they provide and are acknowledged as expert care partners who are critical to the health and social care economy in Hillingdon.
2. Our support will be tailored to meet individual needs, enabling carers of whatever age to maintain a balance between their caring responsibilities and a life outside caring. We will create partnerships that ensure they can do that safe in the knowledge that the person they care for is well-supported and cared for.
3. We will grow our range of services and extend their 'reach', both geographically and in terms of seven-day access. In addition we will improve and strengthen our partnership-working and increase our range of collaborative projects.
Hillingdon Carers aims to:
- Find more 'hidden' carers, those that dont recognise they are a carer.
- Have projects in place that help to tackle carer loneliness and social isolation
- Have an extended range of services that reaches more carers and can meet the ever-increasing need for support
- Be able to demonstrate improved physical and mental health in carers after contact with our services and provide more help for self-management of long-term conditons
- Be supporting more carers to manage all elements of their caring situations
